At the beginning of the 21st Century monsters still roam the remote, and sometimes not so remote, corners of our planet. It is our job to search for them. The Centre for Fortean Zoology [CFZ] is - we believe - the largest professional, scientific and full-time organisation in the world dedicated to cryptozoology - the study of unknown animals. Since 1992 the CFZ has carried out an unparalleled programme of research and investigation all over the world. Since 2009 we have been running the increasingly popular CFZ Blog Network, and although there has been an American branch of the CFZ for over ten years now, it is only now that it has a dedicated blog.

A strange creature reported from Vermont about 1971.  It all began when people in the Turkey Hill area reported missing cats and dogs.  Then, one night, a farmer discovered a man-sized creature going through his garbage.  This being was covered with light-colored, perhaps even white, hair.  It had the face of a pig.  The same creature scared the living daylights out of four youths who discovered him in a sand pit.

Jeff Hatch, a high school student, and others decided a seemingly abandoned pig farm might yield some answers about the creature.  They found hogs of large size roaming about the place.  They also discovered a small room attached to the barn which contained some hay, flattened as though someone had slept on it.  There were dead cats and dogs in the room, perhaps partially eaten.  

Near to the farm, people started having sightings of the Pigman.  One motorist, on emerging from his vehicle, was attacked by it.  He mentioned his assailant had clawed or taloned hands rather than porcine trotters.  The Pigman was said to have taken up residence in a cave.  He has not been seen for many a year.

There was speculation that he was a human-pig hybrid.

The South Georgia Pigman was said to have lived in the Okefenokee Swamp.  He was a somewhat timid humanoid.  He had a body like a hairy ape with a piglike snout or nose.  There have been no recent reports.
